Description

Taking the life of artist Fabio Mauri and the history of his family -a publishing dynasty with close connections to radical Italian art, poetry, cinema, philosophy, and literature- as a starting point for a re-examination of the forces shaping Italian visual culture between the end of the Second World War and the Years of Lead, this publication combines commissioned essays and first-person accounts with translated writings from the period to explore the ideas circulating in Rome and Milan in the 1950s and 1960s. The publication aspires to provide an alternative, anecdotal, and partial perspective on a turbulent period, drawing attention to the pivotal personal and professional networks that shaped postwar Italian art.

The Artist

Fabio Mauri

Post-war Italian artist Fabio Mauri’s practice encompasses performance, film, installation, found-object sculpture, mixed media works and theoretical writings to question readings of history and the associated power of language and ideology associated with the Second World War and the Holocaust. Sobering, direct, and poetically reflective, Mauri’s art addresses themes of communication and manipulation, and brings light to the ‘political dimension of the image,’ as it is projected and proliferated throughout contemporary society.
